Classic cars cruise Creemore for Friday Night Lights
Friday Night Lights is coming to Creemore.
Corey Finkelstein, who has organized Creemore Valley Classics car show on Mill Street for the past 11 years, decided to change things up a bit this year by hosting four Friday night shows throughout the summer.
The car shows will be more casual with owners invited to come to town for the evening and park along the street. The idea, based on the popular Cars and Coffee events, is that the vehicle owners come to enjoy an evening in Creemore and meet with members of the collector community while providing an impromptu car show for spectators and other visitors.
Finkelstein is hoping businesses will stay open late and people from out of town will come in to shop, have dinner and stroll the street while looking at the cars.
The show is geared toward owners of vehicles from the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s. Finkelstein said the newer cars are growing in popularity with collectors, as the next generation of classic car enthusiasts get involved.
“We are hoping to draw a younger crowd and some different car owners,” said Finkelstein, who says he too is interested in the newer models.
The first show is on May 31 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The others are planned for July 12, August 23 and Sept. 6.
